Carl Hiaasen: Remembering the Florida panther's champion

Remembering the Florida panther's champion

The last time I heard from Dr. David Maehr, about three weeks ago, he invited me to go bear-tracking.

Dave was a gung-ho wildlife biologist, and he was always tracking something. I'd met him more than 20 years earlier, when he was catching panthers in the Everglades and collaring them with radio transmitters.

Now Dave was doing the same thing with Florida black bears, mapping their movements with the goal of protecting the species by preserving its native territory.

He'd bait the traps with doughnuts, which bears evidently cannot resist. He e-mailed photos of a young male that had figured out how to pilfer the pastries without tripping the trap. Dave admired the animal's ingenuity, but he was determined to outwit him.

I couldn't join Dave on that trip, so I didn't get a chance to speak with him again. He died on June 20 in a plane crash near Lake Placid. He was only 52.

Dave and a friend, grove owner Mason Smoak, had been tracking bears from the air, following signals transmitted from the collars. The accident wasn't a major news story outside of Lake Placid and Lexington, Ky., where Dave was a professor of conservation biology at the University of Kentucky.

Still, everyone who loves Florida should know about him. This is especially true in the celebratory afterglow of last week's startling announcement that the state intends to buy out U.S. Sugar and reclaim more than 100,000 acres of cane fields for Everglades restoration.

No one did more than Dave Maehr to save the the Everglades' most iconic inhabitant, the panther.

For 14 years he was employed by what was then called the Game and Fresh Water Fish Commission. He laid eyes on his first panther in January 1986 -- at the time, no more than 30 were thought to be alive.

Little was known about the remaining cats, and many experts believed that the species would be extinct before the turn of the century. Dave was determined to prove them wrong.

''The animal is not a biological lost cause,'' he later wrote.

Dave believed that habitat loss was the prime threat, and he began working closely with ranchers and farmers on whose lands the panthers often roamed.

He and his recovery team tracked and collared more big cats than anyone knew existed, over at least three generations. The radio telemetry and capture data provided important and surprising clues about the panther's vast range, its breeding habits, diet, mortality and adaptation to human encroachment.

Importing cougars

Gradually, a rich and detailed picture emerged of a creature so elusive and enigmatic that very few Floridians have ever seen one in the wild. I saw my first with Dave Maehr at my side.

Over time, he became the preeminent authority on panthers, writing or co-writing more than 20 scientific papers and a book that's still considered the definitive text: The Florida Panther: Life and Death of a Vanishing Carnivore.

He also ticked off some people. When reporters asked a question, he'd answer bluntly and with little regard for what his bosses might think. He was perpetually exasperated by the lead-footed bureaucracy of wildlife management, and he'd say so.

Dave didn't care about diplomacy. He cared only about saving the panther.

When Texas cougars were imported to breed with their Florida cousins, Dave wasn't shy about stating his misgivings. Such outspokenness didn't endear him to his superiors, and he eventually left the game commission.

(Introducing the cougars has reduced inbreeding and appears to have enhanced the survival rate of panther kittens, though the program remains controversial.)

For a short time Dave worked as a private environmental consultant and got slammed by former colleagues when he supported a development proposal near Naples. He was stung by the reaction to his findings and to the end insisted that his science had been sound, that the project wouldn't have harmed the panther population.

Dave returned to the academic world, got his doctorate and settled at the University of Kentucky. (The school has set up a David S. Maehr Memorial Fund, at www.cauky.edu/forestry/. All donations will go toward wildlife conservation projects).

Over the past year I'd been researching a children's novel set in the Big Cypress, and bugging Dave with questions about tracking panthers. He was patient, helpful and droll as always.

''I know this is going to sound strange,'' I said during one conversation, ``but what does panther poop look like?''

He gave me a clinical yet vivid description, adding that the odor was spectacularly vile. ''Be sure to put that in your book,'' he told me.

Dave leaves behind his wife, Diane; two grown children, Erin and Clifton; his parents, a sister and two brothers, along with scores of admiring colleagues and grad students.

He also leaves behind 80 to 100 wild Florida panthers, possibly more. The cats are still seriously endangered, but they're hanging on longer and in larger numbers than anyone had foreseen 20 years ago.

Who knows how few -- if any -- would still be left, if not for the extraordinary efforts of Dave Maehr and those who've followed him on the trails.

Carl Hiaasen: EPA ducks duty to keep water clean

EPA ducks duty to keep water clean

Snubbing a 2006 court decision, the Environmental Protection Agency says it won't require permits for ''transfers'' of massive volumes of water, no matter how scuzzy that water is.

''Clean water permits should focus on water pollution, not water movement,'' declared Benjamin Grumbles, one of many useless EPA hacks who next year will be out of a job, and not a moment too soon.

The agency's reasoning for ducking its responsibility is craven and porous. It claims the federal permit program is designed strictly to stop polluters from trashing waterways -- not to prevent dirty waters from being moved into clean waters by local governments.

Extend this lame logic to a personal level. Say someone hands you a bucket of raw sewage. As long as you didn't create the sewage yourself, you'd be free to pour it into a neighbor's swimming pool.

Intentionally contaminating healthy water with polluted water -- regardless of the source -- is itself a flagrant act of pollution. Yet the EPA says it can't be bothered with regulating such transfers.

The Florida case stems from lawsuits initiated by the Miccosukee Tribe and environmental groups against the South Florida Water Management District, which pumps billions of gallons of water through canals and marshlands.

Agricultural pollution

Flood control and maintaining adequate urban water supplies are the district's priorities, though it is deeply involved in numerous Everglades restoration projects.

For years, Miccosukee leaders have claimed that the agency funnels dangerous amounts of agricultural pollution into tribal waters, in violation of the federal Clean Water Act.

State water managers say they need independent authority to move and allocate water for the public good -- or at least, their view of what's in the public good.

The board members are political appointees so, not surprisingly, what's good for sugar tycoons, cattle barons and housing developers is often deemed good for the general public.

And if that means uncorking crappy water into Lake Okeechobee or the Everglades, so be it.

Cattle dung, fertilizers

A few years ago, the issue went to the U.S. Supreme Court, which decided that a Broward pumping station could operate without a permit. However, the High Court sent the case back to federal court in South Florida to deal with the key pollution questions.

In December 2006, in a second case, U.S. District Judge Cecilia Altonaga ruled that by back-pumping billions of gallons of farm effluent into Lake Okeechobee, state water managers were violating the intent of the Clean Water Act.

The judge rebuffed the EPA's narrow interpretation of its permitting authority, and she also rejected assertions by the South Florida Water Management District that it would be too costly and complicated to seek federal permission for water transfers.

There would be no lawsuits, or debate, if the water being transferred were actually clean. Millions of tons of cattle dung and fertilizer tend to produce unhealthy lakes, rivers and bays.

The horrid results of the district's primitive pumping policies are most visibly evident during seasons of heavy rain. As soon as the floodgates of Lake Okeechobee are opened, huge cascades of nutrient-choked water rush into the St. Lucie waterway to the east, and the Caloosahatchee River to the west.

Eventually this crud is swept all the way to the Atlantic and the Gulf of Mexico. It's nothing more sophisticated than the deliberate flushing of an enormous, fetid toilet.

The EPA says the U.S. government's role should focus on stopping pollution at its source. Of course, if the agency had been doing its job, cane growers and ranchers and municipalities wouldn't have been allowed to drown the Everglades with their filthy runoff for all those decades.

The spineless way out

Indeed, if the agency had done its job, the Clean Water Act wouldn't be the joke that it is today all around the country.

The Miccosukees probably weren't stunned that, under its current leadership, the EPA would take the spineless way out and let Florida continue pumping dirty water wherever it pleases.

As the sun sets on the calamitous presidency of George W. Bush, the same government that falsely pledged to help save the Everglades now won't lift a finger to make the state stop contaminating it.

We should have expected no more.

Vandals left anti-Obama, McCain notes
by Katie Fretland

In downtown Orlando, 24 cars were vandalized yesterday and the culprits left behind note cards with messages that supported Hillary Clinton and insulted Barack Obama and John McCain.

Our friends at the Orlando Sentinel report that three of the cars had political messages painted on them. One read "Obama smokes crack," according to photographs from the scene.

Note cards at the scene, signed by "CR," contained a variety of messages, including, "How about them Gators," "Legalize marijuana/stop building prisons," and "Ladies I'm single, some girl step up."

Orlando police Sgt. Barb Jones said police were investigating the vandalism, which occurred sometime before 4:30 p.m. yesterday at a public parking lot off of downtown Orange Ave.

MCCAIN MEETS WITH BILL, FRANKLIN GRAHAM

From www.rense.com/general20/billy.htm
Rev. Billy Graham openly voiced a belief that Jews control the American media, calling it a "stranglehold" during a 1972 conversation with President Richard Nixon, according to a tape of the Oval Office meeting released Thursday by the National Archives.
"This stranglehold has got to be broken or the country's going down the drain," the nation's best-known preacher declared as he agreed with a stream of bigoted Nixon comments about Jews and their perceived influence in American life.
"You believe that?" Nixon says after the "stranglehold" comment.
"Yes, sir," Graham says.
"Oh, boy," replies Nixon. "So do I. I can't ever say that but I believe it."
"No, but if you get elected a second time, then we might be able to do something," Graham replies.

BOYTOTT FLORI-DUH, THIS STATE IS SHIT, I MEAN IT

For those reading from out of state, I have so damn HAD it with my home state. This is 100% serious, BOYCOTT FLORIDA, rather FloriDUH, aka the DUMBshine state. This place is nothing short of the LARGEST backward, rude, unprogressive, hopeless, shitty, pathetic, narrow-minded TOLIETBOWL ON EARTH.
There is NO place on EARTH with so many unevolved, whinny, arrogant, nasty, back-stabbing, willfully ignorant, retarded, mean-sprited shitheads who for some astounding reason think they deserve the goddamn red-carpet treatment I guess since they've near worked a day in their lives and expect you to wait on them hand and foot, it's just beyond belief. This state MUST be boycotted. There's no reason to vacation here. There's NOTHING but bullshit as far as the eye can see.
No one here give a DAMN about supporting anything progressive, getting of their wart-ridden asses to protest shit, can't spend 10 minutes to even put of roadsigns, so it's no surprise the outrageous way of Janice Langbehn was treated at such a horrid time and in such a revolting way, HAPPENED IN SOUTH FLORIDA, THE CROWN JEW OF THIS GIGANTIC TRASH-HEAP OF A STATE. This is sadly a TYPICAL EXAMPLE of what goes on in this state. How fucking completely vile and tyrannical. Like it would have been the END OF THE DAMN WORLD to let a gay couple be together when one is on their DEATH BED. And this bullshit of this scumbag social worker saying they're in and "anti-gay city and state" is just jaw-dropping. I'd really like to know if this social worker was a minority. How THEN would YOU like it if the shoe was on the other foot? "Sorry, but you're in an anti-(racial epithath here) city and state." Do you think THAT would fucking fly?! And excuse me, but anti-gay state?! You bastard whoever said this, goddamn you. As a native of THIS STATE, don't DARE lump us ALL in. Ok, I ain't anti-gay, but ya know what I AM anti?! ANTI-NAZI DIRTYBAG BIGOTS. You anti-gay troglodytes wish to form your own state, go ahead, but don't drag ALL of us down with you to your single-celled level.

Please encourage people to NOT come here on vacation, or for ANY REASON. This state MUST be BOYCOTTED. That's just all there is too it. And even then, people down here are NEVER going to get their act together and GROW UP. It's never going to get better.
It really is now wonder most of the 9/11 hijackers used South FloriDUH as their base, since it's NOTHING more than the land of purely rotten nasty sad sacks of human waste.
And again, PLEASE encourage EVERYONE YOU KNOW to BOYCOTT THIS STATE. After all, you could be the next victim of the hate-filed ignorance-drenched christian Neanderthal laws of this state...

Lawsuit: Jackson Memorial barred lesbian from seeing dying partner

The family vacation cruise that Janice Langbehn, her partner Lisa Marie Pond and three of their four children set out to take in February 2007 was designed to be a celebration of the lesbian couple's 18 years together.

But when Pond suffered a massive stroke onboard before the ship left port and was rushed to Jackson Memorial Hospital, administrators refused to let Langbehn into the Pond's hospital room. A social worker told them they were in an "anti-gay city and state."

Langbehn filed a federal lawsuit Wednesday charging the Miami hospital with negligence and "anti-gay animus" in refusing to recognize her and the children as Pond's family, even after a power of attorney was faxed to the hospital within an hour of their arrival.

The case raises questions about the way hospitals deal with same-sex or unmarried partners of patients, which has led to controversy in the past. Hospital industry officials say they are constrained by patient privacy laws that can restrict giving visiting access and medical information to nonrelatives, a stance that some patient advocates have branded as discriminatory.

Pond, 39, was pronounced dead of a brain aneurysm about 18 hours after being admitted to Jackson's Ryder Trauma Center. Langbehn said she was allowed in to see her partner only for about five minutes, as a priest gave Pond the last rites.

"I never thought almost 20 years of love and family could be disregarded in an instant," said Langbehn, a social worker who lives with her children in Lacey, Wash.

The suit, filed in U.S. District Court in Miami, charges hospital social worker Garnett Frederick and physicians Alois Zauner and Carlos Alberto Cruz with negligence and "intentional infliction of emotional distress." The suit seeks damages in excess of $75,000.

"No matter what your definition of family is, this family went through terrible indignities," said Donald Hayden, a Miami lawyer who joined the national advocacy group Lambda Legal in bringing the suit. "The partners here did everything they were supposed to do under law and were still denied visitation rights that should have been allowed."

Jackson officials declined to comment, except to say that the hospital follows state and federal laws on patient privacy that can forbid releasing health information to those outside the patient's immediate family.

The hospital also may limit visitors if a patient is being treated for a trauma, emergency or serious infection, said Valda Clark Christian, an assistant county attorney representing Jackson.

At a Miami news conference, Langbehn, 39, broke down when she recalled the eight hours she and her three adopted children — now ages 11, 12 and 14 — sat in a hospital waiting room with little knowledge of Pond's condition. "As I sat there wracking my brain, I would go outside and scream into the Miami night," she said. "I felt like a failure for not being there holding her hand."

Pond, Langbehn and the children arrived in Miami for a Caribbean cruise with R Family Vacations, a company run by Rosie O'Donnell and her partner Kelli Carpenter that caters to gays.

Pond was stricken shortly after boarding the ship Norwegian Jewel as she watched her children play basketball, Langbehn said. She and the children were told virtually nothing about Pond and not allowed to see her — even though Pond's sister arrived from Jacksonville and was sent straight to Pond's room.

When Pond was declared brain dead about 10 a.m. the next day, her heart, both kidneys and her liver were harvested for donation, according to her wishes, Langbehn said.

Linda Quick, president of the South Florida Hospital and Healthcare Association, said she did not think Jackson broke any laws or rules and chided the family for seeking money from a public hospital.

"Whether [Jackson] could have been more culturally sensitive, maybe. Do the [the family members] deserve an apology? Probably," Quick said. "But that's tax money they are trying to get."

Federal health privacy laws say hospitals should not disclose details about a patient except to the nearest family member or someone with power of attorney. Hospitals legally do not have to allow visitors.

Florida law spells out a priority list for whom doctors should consult about a patient's health care: first, a guardian or health surrogate, then a spouse, adult child, parent, adult sibling, adult relative and finally a close friend.

Normally, hospitals honor a power of attorney but there could be legal or logistical reasons that would interfere, said William Bell, attorney for the Florida Hospital Association.

Quick said it may be time to modernize the law.

"Today's lifestyles may require some broader interpretations of what is a family member," Quick said.

Pentagon can't account for $2 billion in anti-terror funds to Pakistan

Breaking News and Commentary from Citizens For Legitimate Government
25 Jun 2008
All items are here:

Pentagon cannot account for $2 billion in anti-terror funds to Pakistan --Overall, the U.S. has paid $5.6 billion to reimburse the country for counter-terrorism expenses, a GAO report says. 25 Jun 2008 The United States has paid more than $5 billion to reimburse Pakistan for counter-terrorism expenses that have often been exaggerated, if not fabricated, according to a government audit released Tuesday that blasts the Pentagon for poor management of the program. The report concluded that the Pentagon could not properly account for as much as $2 billion in payments to Pakistan over a three-year period from 2004 to 2007. Auditors uncovered an array of questionable costs, including $45 million for roads and bunkers that may never have been built; $200 million for the operation of air defense systems even though Al Qaeda [al-CIAduh] has no known aircraft; and overcharges for meals and vehicles used by Pakistani troops.

First let me start off by saying MORE POWER TO LORI & all the bad asses at LegitGov.Org!!! There are so few people out there I rank in such high esteem for having the courage to not give a fuck what anybody else thinks AND SPEAKS TRUTH TO POWER!!!! Now, time for me to, as Perry Farrell sung best in "Whores": "YOU WANNA HERE ME GO OFF?! MOTHERFUCKER!!!!!!!!!!!"

Hmm, well, I guess it's safe to say this POPS the LIE that the GOPuketards ARE THE PARTY OF FISCAL RESPONSIBILITY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Let's stop and THINK this one through y'all. Now, I don't know about YOU, but, when I misplace anything over 50 CENTS, I say "WOAH! WHAT THE HELL?!!?!?! I JUST HAD THAT MONEY AND WHERE THE FUCK DID IT...oh nevermind, I put it in MY OTHER POCKET!!!!!"
Contrast THAT, so, "Well, $2 BILLION, eh, whatever! No biggy really..." RED FLAG!!!!!! No other way to damn put it!!!!!!!!! If I lost, or even SUSPECTED that caliber of LOSS, I'd be FLIPPED THE FUCK OUT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! $2 BILLION?!?!?!?! Excuse me, what are y'all lacing your weed with?!?!?! That's just RETARDED!!!!!!!! No, actually, what it is, is plain and simple. IT'S CALLED STEALING. You heard me, you sorry bitch conservatives. I could swear that's contradicting to one of y'all's 10 FUCKING COMMANDMENTS, no?!

When you really boil it all down, just beyond belief!!!!!!!!! When this country was founded, flawed to hell and back yes we know (by, as the late great George Carlin stated best "By SLAVE OWNERS who WANTED TO BE FREE!) the very CONCEPT of loosing even a minuscule FRACTION of that amount of money, would have been not only unheard of, but if such a blatant RIP OFF was done, THERE WOULD HAVE BEEN CRIES OF BLOODY MURDER!!!!!!!!!! HEAD WOULD HAVE ROLLED!!!!!! LITERALLY!!!!!!!!!!! Yet, the level of PURE CORRUPTION has reached such a mind-boggling frenzy, that this is JUST ACCEPTED AS THE NORM!??!?!??!?!?!?!?!?!?! And don't think I'm just picking on RepubliTARDS, since FAR too many are guilty of aiding and abiding of this hijacking of American Democracy who are of the party Thomas Jefferson founded--then named the Democratic-Republican Party, now known as the Democratic Party, and BLOW MY ASS you Cons who call it the "Democrat Party", cuz ya know what, THERE IS NO SUCH THING! Stop being condescending, learn to fucking SPELL, and cut the shit already!

WHAT IS IT GOING TO TAKE AMERICA?!?!?!?!?!? We have SUFFERED under this PURE TYRANNY CORPORATE "FREE TRADE/MARKET" RULE since in 2000, the Supreme KKKourt intervened RIGHT HERE IN MY BACK YARD on a STATE ELECTION (so much for STATE'S RIGHTS, huh RepubliTARDS?!?!?!?!) under the NAZI RULE of THE BU$Hitler CRIME FAMILY, and arguably since Ronny Raygoon (via GWHB) STOLE office from Carter (Iranian Hostages, anyone?!) in 1980, and for the last nearly 3 DECADES for the most part (again, this includes Bill Clinton--NAFTA, GATT, WTO, 1996 Tele-Com Dereg Act, NOT getting us all NATIONAL HEALTH CARE, etc.) had out CIVIL LIBERTIES flushed down the ye ol' crapper, seen taxes on the middle class (what's left of it) and the poor JACKED SKY HIGH, seen the taxes on the wealthy & corporations CUT TO VIRTUALLY NOTHING, working wages go DOWN for their buying power, AND ON AND ON AND ON AND ON IT GOES, yet damned if WE THE PEOPLE DO NOT GET SERIOUS AND DO SOMETHING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! It just SERIOUSLY boggles my mind!!!!!!!!!!!!! What is WRONG with people?! Listen, I realize 99% of people in this country have been unmercilessly kicked in the NUTS since 1981, intimidated, beat down (often time literally), etc., but at what point do you STOP acting like a kicked Cocker spaniel who rolls over, and say FUCK YOU! I am of the Anton LeVey philosophy of "IF SOMEONE SMACKS YOU ON ONE CHEEK, SMASH THEM BACK ON BOTH!!!!" How can we SIT BACK, and (again, generally speaking) not even have the SPINE to SPEAK OUT on this INJUSTICE?!?!?!?!!? Much less GET OFF OUR ASSES, AND DO SOMETHING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! People in EVERY OTHER industrialized country (you know, the OTHER 36, the ones who DO have HEALTH CARE FOR ALL THEIR CITIZENS!) DO GENERAL STRIKES, for A HELL OF A LOT LESS, AND I MEAN A HELL OF A LOT LESS, than what 99.999% of ALL Americans have had to ENDURE and SUFFER and FIGHT TOOTH AND NAIL with since the "Reagan Era". So again, WHAT IS IT GOING TO TAKE?!?!?!!

Tim Russert Vs. George Carlin

Hey, did you know TIM RUSSERT DIED?! Oh yeah, kinda hard NOT to since the corporate bullshit media rammed it down our throats since the nanosecond his body fell over dead.
This motherfucker, who Mike Malloy so aptly dubbed "Media Whore #1", gets like a week PLUS of tributes and bullshit, like WHO CARES! But, George Carlin, well...that lasted like a day...WHAT THE FUCK!? All Russert did was ASS KISS, ask soft-ball lame questions, help lead this nation into an illegal war based on LIES, but he deserved that gigantic BOO HOO fest?! Fuck off! OH YEAH, THAT SURE IS JOURNALISM!
George Carlin was a national treasure. A non-conformist who stood up, said "this is all BULLSHIT", took on christianity head-on, and above all, WAS BRAVE. He spoke his mind, like it or not, and didn't give a fuck. That's certainly NOT something that can in any way be said about Media Whore #1.
Tim Russert contributed NOTHING to making people think, NOTHING to making people laugh, NOTHING to making this shit world a better place. All he did was allow a platform for lying cocksuckers to get on the air and bullshit people. Period, the end!

RIP George Carlin

Aw GODFUCKINGDAMNIT, what a SHIT way to start the week. Of ALL the people I was not looking forward to that one dark day when it came to add them to my DEAD HEROES list, George Carlin was pretty goddamn close to the top. FUUUUUUUUUUUUUUCK!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Well, I am honored to have seen his live show from the 2nd row back in 1995 at Sunrise Musical Theater. What is amazing really is how George RIPPED the living SHIT out of the "Establishment" yet was accepted by the mainstream! Odd how instances like that happen, yet how many people know about Bill Hicks, Lenny Bruce and folks like that?!
And let's give it up to George for rejecting the INSANITY that is CHRISTIANITY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
"Class Clown" shall ALWAYS be a classic, as is "AM/PM", "Occupation Foole", "What Am I Doing In NJ?", "Jammin' In NY", "Back In Town" and "You Are All Diseased"!
Well, I think George's work stands for itself, so what the fuck is there really for me to say, other than:
SHIT, PISS, FUCK, CUNT, MOTHERFUCKER, COCKSUCKER and TITS!!!!!!!!!!!!
Hail George Carlin!
HAIL SATAN!!!

Just for the record, I am going to keep posting posts like this UNTIL THIS BULLSHIT ILLEGAL OCCUPATION COMES TO ITS MUCH OVERDUE END.

Taking pictures of things that aren't there

Thanks to BVB for the heads up on this!

This is an interesting artist. He takes pictures of spy satellites and other things that done exist.

I get a chuckle from this line:
"The National Reconnaissance Office cannot classify Kepler's laws of planetary motion,"

Dear NRO, perhaps THIS will help you classify Keplet's laws of planetary motion:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kepler%27s_laws_of_planetary_motion
What the shit does that mean anyways?! They cannot CLASSIFY his laws?! Why not just say it, you HATE science, facts, details, shit like that, and you are just a bunch of LYING COCKSUCKERS!!!! Com'on say it: "I AM A LYING COCKSUCKER!" Feel better now don'tcha?!

I honestly would be SURPRISED if there was JUST 189 SPY SATELLITES!!!!!!! YOU MEAN THERE AREN'T MORE?!?!?!

Ultimately, the satellite photos are an attempt to critique that attitude. While the budget for black military operations has more than doubled in the last 10 years and the government continues to espouse the virtues of secrecy, it can't prevent interested amateur astronomers from calculating the orbital paths of spy satellites.

Hey, maybe y'all can get a good picture of me tomorrow sunning in my pink bikini!!!!!!!! SIKE!!!!!! Actually, it's black...one piece...HAWT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! And tell the NSA the following: DON'T HATE ME CUZ I'M BEAUTIFUL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
